is we've got a wonderful energy practice. we're going a lot of things. our mantra is we want to find our clients yield, growth, and inflation hedging. we're doing that across our real assets. energy, infrastructure, real estate, and that's something we're very well prepared to do and we've been able to partner with our clients and put a fair amount of capital in that space. i think that will continue to be a big area for the firm. >> what about technology? you know, larry ellison yesterday talking about growth from the cloud. that's obviously one of the themes within tech. what where are you seeing nunt tech? >> technology in the u.s. is 15% of our market cap. it's 3% in europe. it's a core competency in the u.s. what i think is happening right now is remember in 1998 the world turned down, but it was asia that was in trouble. the central banks put liquidity in and technology did well, particularly growth stocks. my view right now is instead of asia being in trouble, it's europe, but people are going to migrate towards some of the good growth stocks. you've seen that in names, you know,
american energy self-sufficiently, coal as an endangered species under obama. listen. >> i like coal. i want to make sure we can continue to burn clean coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. >> lots of bozos went in and bought the coal stocks. all the coal stocks on. this wrong take away, people! coal's hostage to chinese demand more than u.s. use. that's not the case for the users of coal. the users, people. and that's why i said romney's giving you a heads up to buy american electric and power, two coal building utilities that have to spend far less retrofitting facilities under romney staff epa. i would be a seller of the console energies in the pea bodies in the strength. i take down union pacific. it is the carrier of clean coal. i would never recommend a company on this show with bad fund am fundamentals. but they can be justified even with this sitting president. the pure coal plays are faltering fundamentally. there is no way i'm going to buy them based on some off handed debate patter. you want a stock that could go either way dependi
and energy a little later on. >>> first, as you probably know, a grim outlook for hp sent shares down 13% yesterday. ceo meg whitman expects revenues and profits for the tech giant to decline in the near term saying unprecedented executive turnovers led to inconsistent strategic choices. our david faber is with meg whitman. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: thanks very much, carl. of course, well, you can certainly give them credit perhaps for transparency, hewle hewle hewlett-packard yesterday laying out a plan tofor remaking the company for next year they're calling a fix and rebuild year. as you said, the stock took a hit on that news. we are joined by the ceo of hewlett-packard, meg whitman joins us from headquarters in palo alto. as always, very much appreciate your willingness to come on in what are seemingly very difficult times. you and i sat down a little more than a year ago when you first joined the company. and i guess my first question would simply be what took you so long? a year is quite a while in the history of a company, certainly one that seems to be in some dis
're in the expansion camp, you want financials, energy, materials. in the contraction camp, you're generally on the defensive side. the trade everybody's been talking about, jim you alluded to it, it's to play the u.s. market, play autos, housing, consumer staples. i call it the home depot trade. it's been a monster. that's the classic trade to play in these circumstances. i have a couple of problems with this. number one, cyclicals have outperformed defensive names in the last couple of months since this has been a very popular notion out there. since june overall, earnings and stocks have been somewhat negatively correlated. we've seen earnings come down and yet the stock markets continue to move up. in the last few weeks, really hold right near its highs. you can argue and there is certainly truth to that that that's because we have q.e. 3, because we've got the ecb in the market. but i look at the facts of where the market is, not necessarily what's been moving it every minute. that's what i see right now. today, the european bailout fund is coming into effect. if spain keeps going along
which direction to take the nation. "squawk" will be right back. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. >>> welcome back, everybody. the economy obviously front and center this week with the jobs report coming out on friday. our guest host this morning runs a company that has several economic indicators all rolled into one. joining us for the remainder of the show with his take on the markets and what's happening in corporate america is jim tisch, and jim, it's great to have you here onset. we were just talking about how you have a lot of different things that really give you a good idea of what's happening in the economy. diamond offshore, what's happening from an energy perspective, you have the luxur
stronger against euro. when that happens usually materials and energies are weaker. that's what's happening today. there's been some collateral damage with other stocks that are suppliers to hp. advanced micromoved down on that news. that's a new three-year low for advanced micro. >> i'm looking for the silver lining. >> we've been moving up for several days in a row right now and are approaching the highs we had a week and a half ago. >> we'll be following jon fortt and bob pisani. ty, back to you. >>> let's drill down on some of the economic issues that are going to come up in tonight's presidential debate. a positive read on jobs ahead of friday's employment report. on the other hand, a bit of a red flag being raised in housing. steve leisman and diana olick are all over the data points. steve, the latest jobs data, is it changing in any way the expectations for this friday's employment report? >> not a lot. economists would like to go from the adp data to higher estimates but it's not been that great over the past couple months. there's a lot of of caution out there among wall street ec
. >> thank you so much, rick. let's check out the latest moves in energy and metals. sharon at the nymex. >> the momentum here definitely in the metals market. i'm standing in the gold pit. gold prices went above $1,794 an ounce. a lot of investors may have looked at the s&p 500's returns, that's decent. but gold up over 10% in the last quarter. silver up over 25% in the last quarter. they want some more of that in the fourth quarter. and we're looking at that here in the metals market. also looking at momentum taking over, the weak sentimental data out of china in terms of the oil price. the oil prices here are a little bit of a bid for oil. the fact that they lowered a mix a little while ago before the open on the weak data out of china on their manufacturing numbers. in terms of the biggest mover here in the commodities space, definitely it is natural gas. natural gas at a ten-month high. natural gas here above 3.40. some are saying that $3 gas is sustainable here even if we don't see the same focus on coal to gas switching. still going to see higher natural gas prices. back to you. >
way to go? >> i think he's right on. i think she's a good choice for yahoo!. she's got a lot of energy, a lot of experience. you know, during my tenure, we had talked about personalization, of course mobile, you know, getting more engage ed users. i think she's right on the mark. she's a great gal. >> and the company recently sold its stake in ally baba, returned the cash to shareholders. was that a good move? under your tenure, the relationship was a bit strained, right? >> well, that was a little bit overblown, but we were actually working a long time to figure out the valuation and how to do this, at one time we had hoped, tax free. i'm very proud of the team, including my ex-cfo. they really put together a good plan with alibaba. which ever way they do it, probably share buy back, i actually have no idea, that's good for the shareholders. >> you know, it seems to me that it's a real crux or sort of a dilemma that you face when you're in technology and sort of a proponent of, you know, information flow across the world and dealing with a government that withholds information. how do
into the electric network. they don't worry about whether it's generated by coal or solar or wind or how the energy is created. they ignore that. that's handled by the electric service provider. they don't have to make huge investments in creating more electricity. it's all done as a service. computing is now being offered for the first time, if you will, over the last few years as a service in the cloud. it means the consumers don't have to get bogged down with the complexity of computing. they don't have to make a huge capital investment. they just plug n run their applications. >> tell me about the world today. there's a concern that things are slowing, not just at oracle, but throughout business because of the global slowdown. that's what we saw in the latest earnings release that you reported. and there's a change in terms of data. data has changed. and you've got to keep up with this changing data coming from all sorts of mobile devices, et cete cetera. tell me about business right now around the world. what are you seeing? >> actually, our business is fairly good. i know in reported u.s. dol
like health care and utilities also on that list. bottom five today shows how weak energy was. down a percent as a group today. materials also lower. i want to show you this chart. this is from spoke investment group. since the market peaked in mid-september, they took a look at market trading in the s&p on an hour-by-hour basis. this is a typical trading chart since mid-september on a daily basis. we've had a little stutter step in the morning. then you get a small rally, sideways action, then the real selloff comes in the hour. their conclusion is that the so-called smart money, the hedge funds, private equity and so forth is where this is coming in and selling at end whereas the so-called, pardon the expression, dumb money has been coming in in the morning. warren myers, do you buy that notion? do you see that trade flow here at the new york stock exchange. >> we do see that to a bit. i would equate that to what's happening in europe. the global impact is so great that we watch the opening here. europe is still active. we follow them. if they happen to be up, we follow them. once
're going into earnings season. let's see how they come out. energy, materials, and financials are supposed to be down and the overall down 5%. >> goldman says this is primarily about the fiscal cliff. do you agree? >> i think it's going to be very heavily earnings driven where you get china and europe in the picture too. i think fiscal cliff is partial. it will be a partial cliff. it won't be a huge dropoff. it will be a partial dropoff, in our humble opinion. we think the consumer and the low interest rates and europe and china mean you're not going to have much earnings next year. that's really our big call. >> are you scared after what he said? >> no, not at all. >> do you agree, disagree? >> it doesn't really change our view on what we're doing. we're buying cheap assets, things like emerging market equities that's trading at 12 times earnings. >> but if he's right, all those assets can get a lot cheaper in the next three months. >> true, true. but what the fed is doing in terms of pumping ining liquidit the market. it's pretty supportive. >> why so pessimistic though? give us a partic
